I started taking a spin class this week! Sevens months pregnant, yep. My boss at work goes like 2 sometimes 3 times a day and loves it, and we kept saying how we couldn't wait until after I had Noah because I could come too. Well, I'm already dieting and exercising, and I thought- I wonder if I could go before Noah came. I Googled, researched and found that with a few adjustments I could definitely spin while pregnant. Attention preggos everywhere don't rush out and hurt yourself because I said it's ok to spin. Here is what I learned, I was in great shape before I got pregnant, I have continued to exercise, and stay in good shape, and I know my body's limitations therefore it is ok for me to do this type of aerobic exercise. From my research I learned that I needed to raise the handle bars higher than normal to ensure my balance stays intact and also because it's sort of uncomfortable to lean over with a belly as big as mine. Also, like anything else you do pregnant or not if you feel faint or too tired- stop! Anyways- I love it! It kicks my butt, but I feel great afterwards and I just flat out really like it. I think I'll continue to go!!
Y'all I haven't blogged in ages it feels like! I have just been so busy, and so tired, I couldn't even drag myself to the computer!! Also, I've been kind of whiny lately (about pregnancy not life in general) and I don't ever want to use the blog to complain. I really wanted to drop a line tonight, though. So here are a few odds and ends - random thoughts and pieces of info I thought I'd share!
First off, Chad opened his State Farm agency this week!! I am so unbelievably proud of him. He is official and opened for business. If any of you are in the state of South Carolina please give him a shout for an insurance quote and see if he can save you money! Chad@northaugustainsurance.com ----yes that was shameless, but I wouldn't recommend him if he couldn't take care of you!!
I am obsessed with this vegetarian chili that I found in the freezer section at Earth Fare. It is ridiculously delicious. It tastes just like real chili! I put some Texas Pete and a slice of fat free cheese in it- ohemgee. It was all under 200 calories for one bowl- even awesomer (yes that's a word)!
Lastly, I nominated a fellow blogger who I think is awesome and I would like to ask all of you to vote for her for BlogHer Voice of the Year....http://www.blogher.com/judging-crunchy
